WIP: "Morning Paper"

"Morning Paper"
This image is the most recent post:

This is something I'm doing just for fun and decided to share.
I'm thinking about placing him in a kitchen setting with his coffee cup and donuts.

I'll show the progress as I work in Photoshop at different stages.

I started out with a pencil sketch I scanned in.
Then created a new layer set to multiply in photoshop to trace the sketch to create the line drawing. (took about 15min.)

2nd image I've started to block in the colors on the background layer.(20-30min.)

More to come as I work on it.
Open to C&C

ha, this is funny

one thing tho: his right breast(?) looks kinda weird.. I think the
perspective is a bit off there.
i really wanna see him in the kitchen, keep on posting

oh man, this guy is such a lazy@ss stereotype! he doesn't even hold the newpaper, he puts it under the arm, so he can keep his hand in the pocked!

Good eye. I made those corrections. Thanks.

Kazuya Mochu: I'm glad you get a kick out him.

Here is an update.

yay, looks better now
found another thin tho
his right shoulder is much higher then his left one
Old 07 July 2003   #6
man, this is very cool

kind of reminds me of thoes Ren&Stinpy closeups. you know? like.. disgusting close ups to the ears, or eyes...

I think you should just add a bit of hair in his belly.

kaktuswasser: His shoulders are a little off. I was trying to give
him a look of a little relaxed and slouched to one side.
But you are right it could use some tweaking to fine tune it.

I've started developing the environment.
Once it is all fleshed out I need to start creating details
that will give the setting more character.

very cool environment.. Those shadows are great!

Nice environment, though I think the chair looks a little out of place. Maybe one of those wicker ones with padded base? Would go with the table more...

Here is a small update.

bang ... that just has so much power, the nose, the hairy chest, the hair on his head and the wide open dressinggown. WAAAAHHH just great.

The environement flashes me a 100% to, you may wanna work on that DOF and maybe hang a small picture onto the wall.
You could also make an outdoor environement to, but hey, you can alot when the day is long

Really man, I love it, don´t see many images like that around here to often.

Looks great!

You definately have a style of your own!

My only suggestion is to define the window a little.

Thanks, Kazuya Mochu, Prs-Phil, DogmaD.

I still need to clean it up , define the window a little bit, and
finish placing the items in the scene. I'm getting there.
Just working on it in between projects.
Hopefully I'll have an update soon.

Great character and welcoming environment! The lighting is really nice. Love what you did to the floor. I half expect to see a cat rubbing up against his leg! Does he have a cat?
The only thing that bugs me a little is his hair. I think the fact that it's outlined in the same fashion as his nose or neck is heavy-handed... I think a compromise between what it is now and what the chest hair looks like might improve it.
I agree with Prs-Phil... this is a refreshing change of pace.
